Gift Box Punch Board Snowman Tutorial

I made this snowman as a sample for a workshop I had in November. It was inspired by a snowman that my downline Valli's daughter made. You can see a photo of her snowman HERE! I took her idea and added a few of my own twists including a box hat and a chevron scarf. Find out how to make this snowman with my video tutorial or look at my quick reference guide below. All the supplies to make this snowman are available for purchase HERE!

Make the following boxes with the Gift Box Punch Board:
  • 2.5" x 2.5" x 1.75" Basic Black Box for the hat
  • 2.5" x 2.5" x 2.5" Whisper White Box for the head
  • 3.25" x 3.25" x 3.25" Whisper White Box for the middle
  • 4" x 4" x 4" Whisper White Box for the bottom

If you need help making the boxes, please see my tutorial on how to use the Gift Box Punch Board here:

Wondrous Wreath Flip Card Tutorial

Last week I was searching Pinterest for cool cards with our Wonderful Wreath Bundle when I came across THIS FLIP CARD by the talented Zoe Tant at Stamping Scene. I couldn't believe she had nary a comment on this card, because it's wonderful just like the wreath bundle. I contacted her and asked her if I could make a tutorial based on her card and she agreed. Thanks Zoe!! If you have time, please visit her blog and give her some love.

What I love about this card is the double wreath design. When the card is closed the top wreath covers the bottom one almost perfectly. Too cool. The best part of it all is that this card is relatively easy and fast to make, for the WOW factor it delivers. My version of the wreath flip card uses the note cards & envelopes, which means that your card will be ready to pop into a matching envelope as soon as it's done. Find out the rest of the supplies you'll need and where to get them HERE!
